Malcontent Theatre Company is seeking actors to fill the cast of it’s upcoming production of Pericles, Prince of Tyre by Jake Fulton.
In this new adult comedic adaptation of Shakespeare’s Pericles, we follow the Prince in his travels across the Mediterranean as he flees from a murderer. A cast of four actors will play the entire ensemble of characters that he meets on his journeys. The production will take place onboard a sunset Harbourfront cruise in Toronto in late August.
With elements of puppetry, movement, and music, we are looking for strong actors with musical ability and an affinity for physical theatre/dance. All actors will be required to play many characters, so versatility and comedic chops are assets. The ability to play an instrument is also considered an asset, but not necessary. The piece is written in iambic pentameter, so experience with classical text is a plus, but not a requirement. In short, we’re looking for performers with a variety of backgrounds and fortés!
Rehearsals will take place August 6-24th, with performances running August 25th-September 1st. Payment is in the form of profit share.
Deadline to submit is June 15th at 5pm. Auditions will be held on June 25th, at the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto. Please include in your submission your availability on that day (Note that the venue is only wheelchair accessible from 10am-5pm). Submit your headshot and resume, with a short cover letter in the body of the email, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
